summary


ALL YOU KNOW has had pace go against him (and some ordinary rides) at his last couple of starts, so with the blinkers on and a switch in rider, he might be able to pick up a deserved victory. There isn’t much pace in this race either but he is drawn low and hopefully rider Alexis Badel can take advantage by positioning him a pair or two closer in the running than in recent starts. CHAPARRAL STAR is a major chance of winning again. He was close to a solid speed last time before running in to dead ends on the point of the turn and he probably should have won. Chaparral Star can atone and maps to potentially control a slow speed on the lead. These two seem clearly the main chances. GENTRY and ISHVARA are both well-exposed and probably need something to go wrong with the leading chances. In addition the barriers work against both these horses tonight, it’s hard to see them getting the right run. GODSPEED is first up and some of his end of season form was commendable, with any market support being noteworthy. All You Know and Chaparral are both well found in the market, but are the horses to beat.

CHAPARRAL STAR appears as though he can lead this event with OUR HERO and JOLLY GAINS potentially pressuring for the lead. The overall tempo isn’t likely to be quick. ALL YOU KNOW and GENERAL DINO can sit just behind those runners in ideal spots.
